Central Texas--No. Just took my Traverse in for service today. They seemed busy enough, but patrons were able to maintain "social distancing" without any issues in waiting areas.

Just the opposite. Getting Emails saying they are taking actions to maintain dealership cleanliness to combat COVID19 and feel confident to shop or service your vehicles....."even have solutions in place if you cannot make it to the dealership". Last time I visited the dealership for service they had Typoid Mary coughing her brains out in the service waiting area and likely where I caught a cold. This is their chance for a bonanza, selling inventory while the factories are shut down.

As with most businesses they are stubborn to shut down, maybe they lie and say it's for their employees so they can get paid but the people at the top don't want their income stream to stop, not one business owner would sacrifice their income stream for their employees.

Things are gonna get worse before they get better, in this lawsuit happy country I wouldn't be surprised to see some employers get sued if an outbreak originates in their place of business.

I watched with interest the Buick/GMC commercials last night that subtly stated that you could now do the processing online and they would deliver vehicle to your door. (Paraphrased, obviously, but you get the idea.) As cintocrunch states, they are reluctant to loose ANY business if they can find a way to work it. I like the innovative approach, but it still means someone, some where, is still physically in an environment that could potentially expose them to the virus.

Right. It's kind of like Grubhub staying open and grocery stores doing online ordering with curbside delivery.

Well if one of those people is ill and touches ALL of those items, they just got a hundred people sick. Now those peoples families will get sick and all of their coworkers over a 5 day period before they start showing symptoms. See how easy 1 person turns into hundred or thousands? I'm not a doomsday prepper but I am being as cautious as I can. Of course my employer still has everyone working in office so...

Quick, buy one of the Amazon bidet attachments for your toiler supply line. Never need TP again.

Garage chest freezers are also "sold out" nationwide!

Bought one from Lowes a week ago (supposed to be delivered yesterday) and learned it will now take until May at the earliest.

To pass the time, we are playing the "what will be sold out next" game...
